in the united states senate, saxby chambliss, who got an a-plus rating from the nra and a 100% rating from the national right to life committee, he is being forced out. he is not far right enough. thank goodness they got that romney guy out of the way. joining me now is michael steele. thank goodness for former chairman of the republican party and as always a good sport, mr. steele. nice to see you. >> it's good to see you, rachel. >> do you think there is really no imprint at all that mitt romney should have left on the republican party? they're just trying to pretend like he was a bad dream. >> well, that's just silly. and the fact of the matter is that mitt romney went through a primary process in which delegates and activists around the country voted overwhelmingly for him. and so to now sit back and say well, there may not be a romney wing of the party, but certainly as our nominee, he did -- he did have some stature. he did leave an imprint and an impression. and you can't whitewash that. you can't just say it didn't happen, it didn't exist. and if we ignore it and pretend it never d
it done, we had it done in the united states senate in a bipartisan way, with the help of our friends on the appropriations committee, the republicans and democrats on this senate floor, and the house of representatives let colorado down. and now we're going to have to go back and find a way to make it right. with that, mr. president, i yield the floor. i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: the presiding officer: the republican whip. the senate is in a quorum call. mr. cornyn: i ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be rescinded. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. cornyn: mr. president, in 2008 a prominent democratic politician said that adding $4 trillion to the national debt was -- quote -- "irresponsible and unpatriotic." in 2009 this same politician said -- quote -- "i refuse to leave our children with a debt they cannot repay." we cannot simply spend as we please. close quote. and again in 2010 this same individual said -- quote -- "it keeps me awake at night looking at all that red ink." a
respect the prerogatives of the united states senate and the members of congress, you represent the american people, you're the other branch of government, you have the right to know what took place. and i have an obligation commensurate with the, you know, regulations and classifications and privacy and other things at play here, to help you get the answers and we'll do that. i hope we can do it in a noncontentious, appropriate way. >> thank you. could i just mention, i think you would aee with me that every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. so there is, it seems to me, a very strong impetus that we realize that the present policy is not succeeding and to look at other options to prevent what is going on for now 22 months and 60,000 dead. >> but i think you would agree with me that whatever judgments you make, they have to pass the test of whether or not, you do them, they're actually going to make things better. >> absolutely. >> you have to make a test of the cost analysis in doing that. and i mean all kinds of cos. human life costs, treasure, effect on other countrie

the united states senate. this would start in the senate, not in the house. there were four democrats and four republicans. the democrats led by chuck schumer include bob menendez from new jersey, dick durbin from illinois and michael bennett from colorado, on. on the republican side led by john mccain, including they include lindsey graham because john mccain can't do anything without lindsey graham alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on
of openly-gay members of congress and openly-gay united states senator and a president who stands up for lgbt rights. [applause] as democrats, our party will proudly continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our lgbt brothers and sisters as we continue this fight. as democrats we are proud that our party truly reflects the diversity of america. we should also be proud that our party made a commitment to insure that our diverse orty is reflected in our day-to-day o operations. by the way, it is no coincidence that this cycle we hired -- [inaudible] and exceeded our one-third diversity spend goal at the democratic national convention. and we have a president who leads the way. i could not have been more proud of our president more yesterday, particularly when he so eloquently reminded us that as americans our journey is not complete until it's complete for everyone. remember when he said our journey is not complete until our wyoming withs, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their effort, our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like
rights in the united states senate. and in fact, i'm told by sources close to both senators that schumer is holding off on releasing his legislation, because he's making changes in the hopes of having a bipartisan bill with tom coburn, strictly on the issue of strength streng background checks. >> thanks very much for that report, dana. kate balduan joining us in "the situation room" as well. there's a lot of movement on this story. >> a lot of movement, a lot of conversations happening, at least, on this issue. and gabby giffords, and her husband, right after the hearing that dana bash was telling us about, she and her husband, mark kelly, they met with president obama at the white house, and the white house sent out this photo of them talking in the oval office. they were talking about, as he told you, the issue of gun control. >> and right after that meeting at the white house, mark kelly came here to "the situation room" and joined me. first of all, let's talk about your wife. how did she prepare for that? because that's really the first time we heard her speak like that over these p
was a united states senator? >> oh, i think he's going to be confirmed. i think he ought to be. he's the president's choice. i think that on some of the issues that people have raised concerns about, he's working for the president's policies, not his own. and i like the fact that he is a decorated war hero himself. going into a pentagon badly in need of more reform, more budget cutting, and who better to do that, than someone with the kind of credibility with the troops that chuck hagel has. >> chuck schumer, speaking of chucks, another chuck, ari, chuck schumer, as you know, a very strong supporter of israel, very tough on iran and its nuclear program. he had a private meeting with hagel, emerged strongly endorsing hagel, saying he'll vote to confirm him. you read that long statement that schumer put out on what he was told by hagel during the course of that private meeting. i rey sum that's reassuring. i assume that's reassuring to you. is it reassuring enough for republicans to vote to confirm him? >> no, i think hagel has broken the land speed record for the most apologies on a
of leadership i intend to provide as president of the united states. >> and, of course -- >> senator clinton, that's a clear swipe at you. >> really? >> back then, it was a very different relationship in the midst of an already bitter rivalry. >> while i was working on those streets, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. >> you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business in inner city chicago. >> but that relationship quickly changed. >> i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> just as hillary clinton showed her support for president obama, obama showed his faith in clinton. >> i have no doubt that hillary clinton is the right person to lead our state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda. >> what was hillary clinton's initial reaction when you told her, look, they're actually considering you as a possibility for secretary of state? >> she didn't believe it. >> reporter: he is one of clinton's closest aides. >> i e-mailed her, i think it was the friday after election day aft
the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>bria
concerns with the plan. ted cruz says allowing immigrants who came to the united states illegally is inconsistent with rule of law and not fair to immigrants who came here legally. >> kelly wright live. thank you. this morning we are hearing from florida senator marco rubio. rubio sitting down with sean hannity to discuss the senate proposal we told you about yesterday and discussing what he thinks are the necessary steps in the immigration process. there must be enforcement measures before a green card. >> i think it's a good time to remind people the vast majority of con sefb tives favor legal immigration. we don't have a little immigration that works right now. illegal immigration undermine illegal immigration. he we understand we have to deal with this. we have 11 million people by all accounts are going to be here the rest of their lives with or without documents. we can't do anything to deal with 11 million people that is unfair to people who have done it the right way or number two will encourage illegal immigration in the future. that's whey your point is so crucial. must
of immigrants who are in the united states illegally. it also calls for an employment verification system that prevents identity theft and would add hiring of unauthorized workers in the future. >>> for the past four years, president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have shared the world stage and a few laughs, but laughs were few and far between when both were running for president. >> while i was working on those streets, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. >> you were practicing law and representing your contributors resco in his slum landlord business in inner city chicago. >> ouch, ouch, ouch. what a difference an election makes. president obama, of course, he won the nomination. clinton won his confidence. and now the president has nothing but praise for the woman who could someday succeed him in the oval office. >> i consider hillary a strong friend. >> i mean, very warm, close. >> hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. >> this has been just an extraordinary opportunity to work with him as a partner and friend.
